How Do We Overcome our Defects and Weaknesses? | Practice to Perfection | Swami Mukundananda

we should not become demoralized accept it as the reality because we have spent
endless lifetimes in this world in innumerable lifetimes we are dashed our
mind to material things so it’s natural that we have deficiencies realize them
and then take steps to eradicate them that is the proper approach some people
when they realize their defects they become despondent Oh Swamiji I will
never do it it’s so difficult know these defects can be removed and that is the
positive part of it so how will they be removed he gives us the sutra the
irreplaceable sutra and that is practice practice practice practice there is no
other alternative to practice everything that we accomplished in the world was
true practice when we learnt typing on the first day it was such a struggle you
have to search for each letter and then when you be typing for one year your
fingers are flying on the keyboard at the speed of 80 words a minute now
somebody comes and sees wow you type so fast do you have some yogic sities of
mystic power not honor City it is the result of one year’s practice
you see these acrobats in the circus they have a plane to copper plate a cup
plate cup plate Cup and then they walk on the tightrope how did this Acrobat do
it it’s the result of years of practice similarly in the spiritual journey we
have to put in that practice and then through that practice we will accomplish
the surrender to God and draw his grace so in order to remove these impediments
